Spanish President Pedro Sanchez was found to be infected with the corona virus on Thursday. Due to this, he will now not be able to attend the G20 summit which will be held in India. Pedro Sanchez was supposed to come to India to attend the G20 meeting, but now his visit has been cancelled.
third leader who did not attend the meeting
In a post on the social media platform I’m fine though. Instead of President Pedro Sanchez, Spain’s Vice President Nadia Calvino, Minister of Economy and Minister of Foreign Affairs will now attend the G20 meeting. It is noteworthy that Spanish President Pedro Sanchez is the third G20 leader not to attend the meeting to be held in New Delhi. Before this, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin are also not participating in this meeting.
New Delhi ready for the conference
The stage is set for the G20 summit at the Bharat Mandapam in New Delhi. This is the first time that the G20 meeting is being held under the chairmanship of India. India wants to show its soft power to the world through the successful organization of the G20 conference. That is why India is trying to make this conference memorable. Many great leaders of the world come to India to attend this conference.
India had secured the chairmanship of the G20 on December 1 last year. Since then, India has organized 200 meetings in 60 cities in the country. Now the 18th G20 summit will be held in New Delhi. At this summit, India will hand over the chairmanship of the G20 to Brazil. South Africa will hold the G20 presidency in 2025, followed by Brazil in 2024. The G20 group was formed in 1999. It was started by middle-income countries with the aim of maintaining global economic stability.
